Holy shit.  Where did this band come from?  I was surfing a few blogs yesterday and came across Earthmother.  Earthmother are a five piece band from South Florida who formed in 2013.  Earthmother play a really interesting style of music that gives nods to various styles of underground music that includes hardcore, punk, black metal, shoegaze, and atmospheric post metal.  At first listen, I thought I was in for a band that was heavily influenced by bands such as Young And In The Way or Deafheaven, but upon listening further, I realized that I couldn't be more wrong.  While these influences are apparent, Earthmother takes things a step further and add shoegaze and atmospheric post metal influences that add an additional layer of complexity to the band's already progressive style.  On paper, I wouldn't think that this combination of sounds and styles would work, but Earthmother manage to pull this off somehow.  This is the band's debut full-length LP, which was released digitally on June 23rd, 2015.  On their self-titled full-length debut, Earthmother offer up eight killer songs that blur the lines between hardcore, punk, black metal, shoegaze, and atmospheric post metal.  Overall, this is a killer LP and should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
